Mandarin Cake


Serves: 10-20 squares
Est. preparation time: 10 min
Est. cooking time: 35 min
Recipe provided by: Joyce's Mom (from the kitchen of "Microwave Marge")



Mandarin Cake:

1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 can drained Mandarin oranges
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla


1/2 to 1 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp butter
3 tbsp milk



Mandarin Cake: Put all together in a bowl and beat by hand for 3 minutes until well blended to smooth consistency. Pour into buttered 8x8 pan and bake @ 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. Frost while warm.

Topping: Bring to boil and pour over cake, pricking with fork. 3/4 of the recipe seems to be enough.

"Microwave Marge" writes a column for the Foster City Islander (CA). Joyce's mom baked this for our office, based on recipe directions. Joyce cut it into bite-sized rectangular servings, and it didn't last long. I got a big end piece with very little topping. It was delicious, moist and tender, and plenty sweet enough. Recommended. 5/20/2003. Hooray for Mom's Goodies!
